Many Quebecers will have no choice but to get out their shovels or expand salt or sand soon.
According to Environment Canada, the regions located south of the axis between the Ottawa Valley and the Bas-Saint-Laurent generally receive 10 to 15 centimeters of snow by Sunday evening. In towns along the Appalachians, the white carpet will be even thicker.
Mother Nature reserve another surprise to the people of Vaudreuil-Soulanges sectors, Haut-Richelieu and south of the Eastern Townships. Freezing rain must fall during the night from Saturday to Sunday and the following morning.
Once Quebecers have finished shoveling or deglaze their entry, they will have very little time to catch their breath as precipitation will resume early in the day on Tuesday and they will continue until the next morning.
In the meantime, almost all of southern Quebec will be treated to a volley of 15-30 centimeters of snow.
In addition, the wind will be the portion of the St. Lawrence Valley, which will most likely generated blowing snow.
